Entire text of the email:

We are reliable, trustworthy lender,I give out affordable loan at 1% interest rate.


Would probably have better success if they actually said who they were.  Or gave a link.  Or used proper grammar . . .

Oh dear...  I checked my spam folder today and found this little beauty:

Dear <email login>,

I know you were expecting to hear back from me much earlier but I didn't want to get back to you empty-handed. I finally found the perfect stock for you and I am confident that it will make you some serious profit.
Remember the one I told you about in November of last year right? You did very well on it and I think this PRFC stock will do the same for your portfolio again.
I have to let you know though that I'm not the only one who found out about PRFC today.
A few of my colleagues are aware as well and they are telling their friends and family about it so I must advise you to move fast if you want to buy it.
I think it's trading at just around 15 cents right now, if you wait too long it might be at 30 or even higher and at that time I won't be able to safely advise you to buy it.
You can buy as many shares as you can first thing at market open on Friday or worst case scenario buy it on Monday but move fast.
I know you don't care about what the company does because you know I've done all the due diligence for you already but PRFC is actually amazing and I think it will do much better than even the one I told you about a few months ago.
One of the company's divisions offers mobile software solutions for the gaming industry. The mobile apps allow customers to play lottery and other games of chance and skill on their smartphones.
The software is extremely advanced and could be the backbone of all mobile casinos in the future.
It is expected that the US will legalize online gaming in the near future and this could catapult PRFC to new highs however even without that the company's software is extremely valuable in the rest of the world and could become extremely profitable.
Something big is definitely brewing at the company. I heard something about buy out rumors but I don't have all the details yet I will keep you posted over the coming days or weeks.
Anyway I won't bore you with much more blabber, but if you have a second do check out PRFC. By the way I will be expecting a nice gift from you once you make fat bank on this one and a nice dinner with the wives is in order.
It's been too long since we last spent a good evening over a bottle of wine. I was going to call you to tell you about PRFC but I figured youre probably asleep now with those crazy shifts you've been working. Take care and call me if there's anything.

Talk soon
Your favorite friend and only broker :)

I received a text today asking me to give money to Jared as the sender had forgotten.

I have had this number for 8+ years, and have no idea who the sender is. I replied that she must have the wrong number.

Spammers often snatch blocks of text from random places online to stick into their email, in the hopes that it will help the spam part get past the anti-spam programs most ISPs have.  The more the email looks like it could be a regular message, the more likely it is to get through.

Which leads to some hilarious combinations, especially when the spam part is supposed to be an image file and gets stripped out, so all that's left is nonsense  :P

Yeah, it's a gem! 

I've seen the nonsense text before but this is the funniest yet.

You sure about that Jones?  My cats get into enough mischief without test tubes and chemicals to add to the mix...   :-\

I just got a picture of a white girl currently living in South Africa who is the daughter of a deceased Haitian millionaire who needs to marry before her 25th so she can come into her inheritance.

Yesterday I was listening to an all-news station on the radio, and heard a commercial that sounded like the marketing director was reading his spam out loud.  This commercial told people that they should go to a certain website to get FREE information on how to "unlock the secrets of the Bible," which would tell them how to make sound financial investments and retire rich.

That's just wrong on so many levels.  It was played during the morning rush hour, too, not just as a late-night thing.

I received an email today informing me that a bank in London had my ten-million-dollar inheritance ready for me. In a fit of juvenile humor, I responded to the email in outrage, telling him that my inheritance was supposed to be twenty million and how dare he presume to take half my inheritance in commission. I then accused him of "feeding off the teat of corruption". It was beautiful, if I may say so myself :D

I run into that particular spam (I think) in written form a lot!  At least, the one that I run into references some sort of secret Bible code that some guy has unlocked and that gives away all the financial secrets you'll need, etc.  I guess it's a form of modern-day Gnosticism?  I forget what website I see it on all the time, but I've definitely seen it as an ad on some news-type website a lot.

The daughter of Muammar Gaddafi wants to send me millions! Lucky me!

Good day I am Ayesha Gaddafi the daughter of the former Libyan leader, Late Col. Muammar Gadhafi. However, I was never in support of my fatherís position in killing the Libyan citizens. I am sending you this email in respect fatherís funds that was deposited in my name in a reputable financial institution  before he died. Now the Government is after us and trying to liquidate all my late fatherís funds.I would need your assistance to move the funds out to your country based on the fact that, all our activities are presently monitored .Hence I seek your assistance. I will send more information to you if you accept to assist me. Right now we have a lot of calamity in Libya and the US government has already seized $200billion dollars of my late fatherís wealth in the United State of America .So therefore, I am trying to make sure they donít find the $100Million that is deposited in my name in BANK
 
This is why I am trying to move the funds as soon as possible because presently, I am in the Oman Refugee camp under the Oman Government Protection Act, I canít make that happen, and hence I contacted you. I have been here in this camp since August 2011 and at that time I came in here, I was pregnant and right now have a beautiful baby. I want you to know that I have a past and history to protect and I have never supported my late father in his doings that is why I want to separate myself from the family. I contacted you because I know you  are capable to handle this project and assist me to receive these funds.
 
 
At this point I canít communicate with you on phone, but only by email as we have restricted access. I will also want you to know that I have done all that is necessary for you to receive these funds without any problem or eyebrow. As soon as I receive your email I will send you more information and also the contact of the financial institution in U.K to contact them and make further claims of these funds to your possession and hold it till am out of this camp for investment purpose in your country. But please I want you to know that I am working with you with full trust and honesty on this because the new Government of Libya is seriously looking for all funds under my late fatherís name.The total fund is $12Million and you shall have 30% of the total amount for assisting me in making this transfer a success. I also want you to know that there is no legal implication of any kind or any unforeseen one and it is 100% risk free and it is compulsory you keep every detail in this message confidential because its
